Duane, I appreciate the suggestion, I will take it off and have a look. I am hoping it just needs a good cleaning , if not I may ask where you accessed the bearing , seals ,etc.
Thanks Again,

Pat,

If you need to remove the top tapered bearing, put the top part of the case with the bearing (cleaned of oils and grease of course) in your oven as high as it will go.  When you take it out, immediately try tapping the bearing out from the top of the case.  Mine came out pretty easy this way.
